The incredibly soothing and magical Sansula instrument belongs to the family of the Kalimba, also known as a thumb piano, and can be played just as easily as your standard kalimba. The instrument has an innovative and patented suspended mounting of the resonating block on a membrane, which gives it such an amazing capability in it's tone and resonance. We at Beautiful Sounds agree it is the most beautiful sounding and easy to play kalimba out there!
The Sansula is known not only its unbelievable sound, but it's elegant design. The oval frame of laminated Beech wood is fitted with a membrane which, together with the resonating block, produces a prolonged, warm and soft tone. It's infamous 'wah-wah' effect can be produced by holding the instrument against the body, on the thigh, or laying it on a table and then moving it up and down on the surface at varying speeds.
The Sansula kalimba comes with a fantastic custom carry case to protect it well in transit and make it very easy to carry.
